€5,300 Main Event

Five Big Stacks Head to Last Five Hands

• Level 14: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

Just five more hands will be played before players bag and tag their chips and look forward to a Day 3 of the EPT Barcelona Main Event.

Nicolas Chouity is edging the field right now as the final hands are about to be played, with Sam Mao sure to be in and around the chip lead when that happens, having crushed his way up to just under half a million. He's a little clear of Ramon Miguel, who also cashed in the Estrellas Main Event this week in his home country. Pasha Khanghah has enjoyed a stellar day at the felt, while Diego Zeiter will hope to finish higher than 58th place, his highest EPT Main Event cash at present, which came in April's Monte Carlo leg.
